    Today I wanted to get some information. I will be openly sharing these results for all after around a week, so every response goes toward more accurate data!

    Please, spend a minute filling in the form: http://goo.gl/forms/xGGWHUfLJN

    I plan to use this as a basis for a bigger report on mapping, which I might make into a Youtube video. The premise for this survey is to see what maps are prefered, and if it has anything to do with theme, space or just general good/bad design.

    If you cannot remember the name of your maps, the TF2 wiki has a list of all maps with small screenshots that may help.

    Thank you for your time and have a good day!

    I think there should be an option of "have not played any of the above". I haven't played any official arena, sd or mannpower maps and had to select a random one.

    None of the questions are required, so you can just leave it blank.

    Data. I'm looking to see what people play the most, if there's a correlation of design across the board and if a maps setting affects people opinion on the map. It will also help people when looking for new map designs. If the four most played maps have similar styles, then maybe there's something there.

    I did not pick a favorite...
    Arena map because I like almost all of them.
    Mannpower map because it's pretty new and there are only 3

    But the survey still shows which of this three are the best which is unsuprisingly thundermountain since it's designed with the hookshot in mind and make the mode more fun this way

    It's in the "control point push" section of quickplay, along with all of the 5cp maps.

    I found it strange on my map preferences... and ironicall I build maps for 3 different themes: deset, alpine, spytech (I error'd on the survey, remove one on farm land and put it to spytech

    I chose Gorge, but Steel is probably my second favorite A/D map. I really like the whole final point is always available to cap, but capping A-D makes it easier to cap mechanic.
    I also like how Steel is a bit more complex then most TF2 maps and requires playing it a bit more then other maps to fully understand, though I can understand how that might turn off some players.

    It was either Steel or Gorge for me.

    I really like Steel for all the complexity and nuances in its design.

    Also it's fun to watch people fall into the death pit.

    I personally enjoy steel because of the final point being open and the different routes. However I would deffinately like to play the map more to better familiarize myself with it.
